Here we go again!
I am participating in SkyRise Chicago 2018, tackling the planet’s highest indoor tower climb at the Willis Tower to raise funds for the nation's best rehabilitation hospital, according to US News and World Report – Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago or RIC)!
I participate in this event yearly because, though I've only heard stories about other people's experiences here (thankfully), I know that the work that they do is truly life changing.
This will be my fourth trip up these stairs and I've never been more excited than I am this year!
Why, you ask? Because this year I've organized a team with some really great people to climb with me who are extremely excited to tackle this challenge. And everything is more fun with good people by your side.
A little about the cause: Shirley Ryan AbilityLab provides world-class rehabilitation care to thousands of patients for traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, stroke and cancer recovery, and more. The funds raised through SkyRise Chicago 2018 will directly support advances in patient care and cutting-edge research at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.
SkyRise Chicago is truly a special event. It’s the only tower climb in the world to offer two modes of participation - by foot up the Willis Tower stairs and via stationary hand-cycling the equivalent distance uphill. These options give anyone, no matter their level of ability, the opportunity to participate.
Help me as I challenge myself physically and mentally to complete the climb and support Shirely Ryan AbilityLab, a not-for profit hospital organization. Your donation will help Shirley Ryan AbilityLab continue to provide patients with world-class care for the brightest possible future.
